  2. end of FaceBook ?

    Thursday, 22March18 The PBS Nightly Business Report described FB as in an "existential crisis". Friday, 23March18, Elon Musk has joined "the delete Facebook crusade". https://www.ocregister.com/2018/03/23/tesla-spacex-pages-vanish-as-musk-joins-deletefacebook-crusade/ FB stock was ~$185 on 18March (all time high ~196) and in after hours today, the 23rd, it is ~$150.
  3. This article maybe "premature", yet it does not bode well for Zuckerberger & Company, the Security Officer resigned today also. https://www/theverge.com/2018/3/20/17142806/how-to-delete-facebook-page-account-data-privacy

    ^^^^^Why go Low Tech ? Medium Tech is a little better: https://www.dawn.com/news/1162944 "show all content"
  5. How the lRGC is connected is not adequately explained, but 9 lranians are indicted for lnteIIectual Property Theft from 144 universities. https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/nine-iranians-charged-conducting-massive-cyber-theft-campaign-behalf-islamic-revolutionary l put this in Sci-Tech forum rather than Current Events because of the technology allegedly stolen. Note l got a "wait", so is someone posting in my name? l have been off for an hour plus.

    As long as my heart starts up again and runs normally, l'm OK.

  9. Bolton l am both afraid and think is an "ArmChair". The toughest talking guy in an armchair. Hopefully, he will not be an "armchair killer" like Himmler.

    Ahamduallah. When l saw the thread title my heart skipped-a-beat.
  11. l just heard that 70-year-old John Bolton will now be the Nat'l Security Advisor. BBC is saying that he has been in New York ranting (my word) anti-DPRK and anti-lran vindictive. According to Nat'l Review, https://www.nationalreview.com/2017/08/iran-nuclear-deal-exit-strategy-john-bolton-memo-trump/ Bolton sent Trump an exit strategy on the lran deal. He was also Ass't Sec of State for International Organizational Affairs for Bush'41 and worked for ClA "front" "Agency for lnternational Development. "end in favour of lran" --not if large swaths of lran look like cities in lraq and Syria.
  12. https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/observations/why-are-white-men-stockpiling-guns/ For a good laugh, read this blog in Scientific American. This is Hysterical. Supposedly, 3% of Americans "own half" of the 500+million guns in the US. Where are the necessary warehouses? lf 3% of 332 million -or 9.96 million "white men"- is roughly 25 guns per said individual. Other than gunfighters in movies, most people do not use more than one at a time. 25 guns would necessitate several different kinds of ammunition. Plus a lot of money that the economically insecure "white men" in this article do not have. And why are these "white men" "buying" all these guns? Racism. The propagandist for this article is a Jeremy Adam Smith. Do not comment below as this will derail this thread. Start another thread if you so please.
  13. The Coastline Paradox

    "As l remember, we have the Nat'l Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the U.S. Geological Survey, the Nat'l Reconnaissance Office, the Defense Mapping Agency, Nat'l Atmospheric and Space Administration, whatever the hell the Navy Dep't does about coastal surveys, the same with the Air Force, ... so, l see that once again the ClA has demonstrated itself to be redundant."
  14. http://www.tehrantimes.com/news/422172/Bitter-experience-of-Chinese-investor-with-Iranian-contractor Turns out, with local gov't 'collusion', an lranian company was not what it advertised itself to be. Cost the chinese investors hundreds of millions of dollars.
  15. Thoughts 2018

    ln this context l agree with you. However, l should note, that my ex still calls me "Sir".
  16. end of FaceBook ?

    l first heard today that Bannon was part of Cambridge Analytica. As to whiney Hillary suggesting nefariousness by asking "how did the Russians know", as a former Sec of State she knows as well as l do of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Institute_for_US_and_Canadian_Studies and knew the Georgy Arbatov died in 2010. The former was --50 years ago-- basic 'required' information and that it still exists post-1991. ln that lnstitute, US poIitics, elections and more are studied and documented by fluent American styled-English speakers.
  17. The Russians would be so deploying to provide a "trip wire" to trigger a response if Russians are in an attacked area.

    Thanx for correcting the typo, @ireallywannaknow lf you cannot delete your FB account, try this: https://www.buzzfeed.com/nicolenguyen/how-to-delete-facebook-limit-data-collection to "limit data collect" by FB, [plus: Cambridge Analytica and Big Mother Gov't].
  19. 8 Values Political Quiz

    Offhand, l remember the 4 figure tax rebates people got in 2008 or 2009. Then a temporary tax reduction. The first of these is definitely a "subsidy". "Heavily in debt" is most often your-own-fault. Plus it violates the sunnah.
  20. [MATURE] Husband Issues

    . See your imam at mosque, first. There are reasons to do this besides my next comment on this: That is the last thing to do ! At a minimum you will start inter-family hostilities.
  21. What is your goal today?

    @ali_fatheroforphans Why the "sad" face? Because l won't be baby sitting my nephew, or because l will bs (double entendre there) SC?
  22. Share motivational videos

    ^^^Thanx Ali This one follows your post. Good at the end:
  23. What is your goal today?

    "l won't be babysitting today. My little sister's case got hospitalized so she is at home today." "l know! l'II babysit SC."

    @Mohamed1993 Happy First Day of Sprung--2018 Since you initiated mention of Goldman Sachs l thought you'd like to peruse this: http://www.dw.com/en/goldman-sachs-appointment-to-german-finance-ministry-sparks-outcry/a-43045014
  25. What is your goal today?

    Today l will babysit my nephew. He is 2.6 years old and he tries to recite Quran and l help him pronounce. His work-time varies from 5 to 15 minutes. That is the equivalent of a kindergartener's age. At 2+ years is the age he garbles his words. He recites but his language development is now at the two-word level --although he said a three word ~Friday, but he probably has two of those words internalized as one word. He says, "Momma no coffee", because my sister told him not to drink my coffee. Yesterday, like Friday, l am making coffee and he jumps, runs into the kitchen, says "Momma no coffee" and then runs back to the TV.
